    We both got steaks that were good, not great for the price. Neither of us cared for the corn or carrot side we got. My baked potato had so much salt on it so didn’t eat outside only inside. Pleasant waitress and great atmosphere.

    I feel like the food was very over priced for quality and taste that I received. Our waiter was very nice but the atmosphere was so loud that you couldn’t have a conversation with anybody at your table.

    Valentine’s Day crowd, they had run out of prime rib after I ordered at 7:30, so I had the filet instead and the manager comp’d most of the price of the prime rib for our next visit. I can’t say the last time a restaurant manger even cared what the experience was like, we will definitely return.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Firebirds. Our server was amazing! He had the best personality and was helpful and attentive every step of the way. On top of our server being fantastic, the GM was superb! He came to our table to check on us and apologize for a change in their salad dressing. :) He was friendly and very attentive as well. We usually always enjoy dining at Firebirds and will definitely be back!!

    We both had a filet that had way too much marbling in it. Also, we had to wait more than 30 minutes longer than our reservation, which we understood because large parties stayed longer than the allotted time. We won't be going back at this time until the quality of the filet is addressed. I understand that most restaurants have a more refined quality than others, but I would like to pay more and get the quality when dining out for an evening.

    My husband and I have gone to Firebirds and usually have a great experience. Therefore, we decided to take our friends there for a nice meal, but it turned out to be a disappointment. I scheduled a reservation in advance since there was a group of 12 of us, but you could tell they were not prepared. Our waiter acted like he didn't want to be there and messed up our drink orders more than one time. Two of the men in the group ordered medium well steaks and both of them were rare. Three of the six couples also had issues with our bill, but we just paid them and worked it out later.

    We had the worse experience last night! Our ribs, prime rib and potatoes were ice cold. We took this in a go bag went home and I heated this up. So much for date night. 🤣 I still ended up cooking. 😩 This shouldn’t have happed. This is the 2nd time in 6 months we had bad food. We won’t be going back.

    The restaurant did a fabulous job.. NYE. Was sent to the bar as our table wasn’t ready. Was served in a timely manner. Was sitted at our table earlier than what our reservation was. We had Trevor as our server.. Loved his friendliness. He came to our table numerous time to check on us, as I noticed he did with all of his tables he had . He was a great server that night.. All the staff worked well with each other and they worked as a team. Managers were on the floor serving food also.. That is how a restaurant should be ran. Food came out quick for considering the night. Great presentation of the food and everything came out correct, the right temperatures and at the same time. It was a great experience!

    Waitress didn’t know about holiday favorites, we had to ask. She did not know about wine recommendations. The sirloin was medium, but very tough. Shrimp was delicious. For the price, it was nothing fantastic. Probably would not go again.

    While the ambiance was great, and the server was attentive, we chose this place for steak. Although half of our party was happy with their steaks, the other half had either underdone or overdone steak. We will probably give them another chance, but when they are less busy.

    We waited over an hour just to get our food. Our drink were hardly filled, bread was not brought to our table for over 45 minutes, all of our food was over done and bland. For the price that we had to pay for our food we were extremely disappointed. We will not be coming back.

    We received a friendly greeting and seated promptly. We were seated over five minutes before someone spoke to us and tracked down the waitress for our table. We placed drink and food orders. We were fine with the cook time and the food was very good. The waitress didn't check on us while we were eating to see if everything was okay. I noticed that two other booths received a bread board, we did not. I finished my meal ahead of my husband. After the waitress took my plate, she came back to ask if my husband wanted a box for the rest of his meal as he was still eating. My husband and I wondered if the waitress was new and inexperienced. My husband finished eating and we received the bill. When the waitress came to pick up our payment, I asked her why we didn't receive bread. She gave a pretty lame excuse(in my opinion) of the restaurant not having enough loaves of bread for the in-house diners. Loaves of bread go out for take-out orders. She uses her discretion as to whether she serves a bread board or not. She also said that she will bring a bread board if customers request it. This happened to be our second time at the restaurant. Honestly, I can't remember if we received a loaf of bread, but we did have a good lunch the previous visit. The waitress did offer a loaf of bread to take home. We declined, as that was not the point. Unfortunately, we will not be back. The service was poor, and I think it's ridiculous to serve some customers bread boards and others not. Also, I felt that the price was a little inflated for the salmon with lobster fondue. The piece of salmon was small and maybe one scoop of lobster fondue. My husband had a hard time cutting through the roasted carrots.

    The food we enjoyed at Firebirds was outstanding and 5e service was exceptional. The only problem we had was the ambient noise level was so high that we had to shout to be heard on 6:30 on a Wednesday evening.
